The ribbon for the screen is folded under the plate. Carefully unfold the ribbon by flipping the screen face down next to the camera. Underneath the plate the connection between the camera and the ribbon can be viewed.

The metal frame of the screen can be removed using a thin spatula or spudger. After the frame is removed the part of the ribbon connected to the screen is accessible.

Completely worthless repair guide! Do not try before reading below!

In Step 4, this guide neglects to mention at all if you raise the plate too high to get to the screen ribbon connector, you will DISCONNECT the ribbon connector “north” (above) it for all the controls and, apparently, power on/off. And if you disconnect this second connector, you are S.O.L. as there is no way to remove the plate completely to reconnect it (the ribbon has nearly zero length/play in it) and the ribbon/control board cannot be completely detached from the plate to give you more length/play as there is a THIRD ribbon connector between the plate and microphone from the control board that dives deep into the innards of the camera.

So because I wasn’t warned and lifted the plate a little too high, I disconnected the controls/power connector with no good way as an average person at home with limited tools or camera repair skills to reseat it, and now have a $20 new LCD screen in a camera that won’t turn on.

Thanks, fixit! >:(
